Go for the pool!
Except for the valet parking situation, my husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Kimpton Canary Hotel. The room felt spacious and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom could stand some updated decor and a couple more towel hooks, but it was clean which is all that really matters. We LOVED the rooftop pool, by far the hotel’s best feature. The staff at the front desk was friendly and check-in/check-out was quick. And, the hotel was in a great location for walking around downtown Santa Barbara. My only wish is that there had been a cheaper self-service parking option in addition to the valet parking service. The valet was expensive ($38/night) and took forever - we usually waited at least 10 minutes downstairs on top of the 10 minutes we gave them between calling for our car and leaving the room. They were also incredibly disorganized and weren’t moving cars fast enough so if they would bring our car around to the front (and sometimes they wouldn’t and we had to walk halfway to the parking garage to get to where they brought our car, defeating the purpose of valet parking), there were cars blocking the way out and they just shrugged their shoulders or said we’d have to wait even longer for them to move all the cars. One time we needed to leave for a dinner reservation so we ended up having to back out onto a really busy street. Super unsafe! I hope they hire more valets to park cars because minus the parking it was a really great place to stay.

Very Lovely
This hotel is so nice and the bed is so comfortable. If you don't like the valet charge you can just park right next door at the parking garage and it's so affordable. It's very easy to find as well. I was very happy with the service and loved my king room with the balcony.
